                              Crest grounds but not KPBX fun

   A cloudburst on July 12 sent volunteers and guests scrambling for cover
at the annual An Evening Under the Stars, but the excitement only seemed to
heighten the fun of the KPBX fundraiser. As soon as the rain passed, guests
went back to their delicious Chicken Pipil and Gallo Pinto from Catered For
You, browsing the Silent Auction items, and enjoying the music by Olinda
Duo. Later in the evening, the Jazz All Stars, including drummer Rick Westrick
and bassist Brian Flick (above) jammed to everyone’s dancing delight.
   The event was underwritten by D.A. Davidson & Co., Express Personnel
Services, Century 21 Beutler & Associates, and Sterling Savings Bank.
   Thanks also to Craven’s Coffee Company, Wildflowers, Sun Rental, LCD
Expo, Alsco American Linen, the Astronomical Society, and SPR Volunteers.
   Additional auction items were donated by Alan's Piano Service, Debbie
Mumm, Inc., Harmony Yoga, Hispanic Business Professionals Association,
Holy Family Hospital, Lake Coeur d'Alene Cruises, Red Deer River Soap,
Spencer's Restaurant, and Keith Harris.

Engineering Intern Todd Gibson
    Not every kid who takes apart his mother’s radio will have a career in
electronics, but Todd Gibson is working his way there. As a student in
Spokane Community College’s electrical engineering program, he is
getting experience through Spokane Public Radio’s Jerry Olson this
summer and fall.
    As Chief Engineer, Jerry is in charge of every bit of equipment, from
the transmitters on the mountains to the wires of the computer network
winding through the halls. He’s grateful for Todd’s assistance.
    Todd says one of the great things about this internship is that the job
is different every day. He says he enjoys working on the equipment in
the studios and the adjoining control room, finding how the circuits work
and how the audio is processed. The most unique thing was heading up
to Mica Peak and learning how the KPBX transmitter works. Even
helping to maintain the SPR computer network is more challenging than
he thought it would be. “It’s all very interesting, and I’ve been learning
that I don’t know as much as I thought I did.”
    Todd admits that he wasn’t much of a radio listener at all before
accepting the volunteer position, but now he listens at home and at the
studios. “I like a lot of the classical and jazz music, and I even listen to
the talk and news programs now,” he says. “Working with the broadcast
engineer got me to listen. One reason Jerry listens is to know when
something goes down. I’m doing that too, so I can ask him what
happened, ‘What did you break?’”
    The internship results in a broadcasting certificate, which Todd says
is the basic requirement for his next step. His goal is to do audio system
installations in businesses and homes. He would also like to work as an
audio engineer.
Todd Gibson played with much of the audio equipment around SPR
this summer, including the Summer KPBX Kids’ Concert cords and
microphones at the Clocktower Meadow stage.
